Skip to comments.A Kerry Endorsement (Bin Laden)(from Investors Business Daily)
Posted on 11/01/2004 7:41:58 PM PST by FairOpinion
But what else can we say about bin Laden's man in this election? That's right: Kerry is bin Laden's choice. No, the mass murderer didn't come right out and endorse the Massachusetts senator. But there's little doubt how he leans.
According to a translation of the tape by the Middle East Media Research Institute, bin Laden warned that any state in the U.S. that "white thug" Bush carries on Tuesday will in effect have chosen to fight bin Laden's al-Qaida.
"We will consider it an enemy to us," says MEMRI's translation, while "any state that will vote against Bush, it means that it chose to make peace with us and we will not characterize it as an enemy."
Got that? If you and your neighbors know what's good for you, you'll vote for Kerry an obvious attempt to influence the election.
At least two questions come immediately to mind: (1) Why would bin Laden prefer Kerry? and (2) Will voters let bin Laden corrupt our election the way terrorists swayed Spain's elections last March?

Thanks for finding this article.
Osama: Vote for the metrosexual candidate and nobody gets hurt!
I just recently became addicted to IBD. Expensive, though, 1.25 for dailies.
Here is the MEMRI Analysis:
Osama Bin Laden Tape Threatens U.S. States Not to Vote for Bush
IBD has always been hard-hitting. Bracing punches to the gut of the lefties. They sound like they're having fun.
This says it all.
thanks for the thanks but i actually saw it of FR earlier then couldn't find it again. GO W!
Strange, I didn't hear about this part in the MSM.
It's from MEMRI:
"In a section of his speech in which he harshly criticized George W. Bush, bin Laden stated: "Any U.S. state that does not toy with our security automatically guarantees its own security."
The Islamist website Al-Qal'a explained what this sentence meant: "This message was a warning to every U.S. state separately. When he [Osama Bin Laden] said, 'Every state will be determining its own security, and will be responsible for its choice,' it means that any U.S. state that will choose to vote for the white thug Bush as president has chosen to fight us, and we will consider it our enemy, and any state that will vote against Bush has chosen to make peace with us, and we will not characterize it as an enemy. By this characterization, Sheikh Osama wants to drive a wedge in the American body, to weaken it, and he wants to divide the American people itself between enemies of Islam and the Muslims, and those who fight for us, so that he doesn't treat all American people as if they're the same. This letter will have great implications inside the American society, part of which are connected to the American elections, and part of which are connected to what will come after the elections."
This makes it very clear that Kerry supporters are fighting for Bin Laden.
We wont be afraid of a guy that wears dresses.
Thanks for posting. I've emailed this to several friends, and left a copy anonymously in the faculty lounge.
"White thug?" don't go there, Usama. You are getting very close to committing a (gulp)Hate Crime.
Investors Business Daily is the best US financial daily -- don't waste time on the other one.
PLUS, technically OBL is Caucasian?!!?!?
In case of a Kerry win, Osama will claim he scared US into rejecting Bush.
Apparently al-Jazzera intentionally mis-translated the word "ay wilaya" (which means each U.S. state) to "country" to set Osama up for this claim.
Additionally al-Jazzera initially omitted the parts that reveal that Osama prefers a Kerry win.
al-Qaeda claims they scared Spain, when in fact they did not.
The Spanish PM blamed 3/11 on a domestic terrorist attack - perhaps al-Qaeda lead him to it - but he was kicked out of office for accusing the wrong people and generating a whole lot of last minute votes against himself.
This could be what exactly what Osama had in mind when he spoke MMoore's words with out referencing them.
MEMRI.org article that corrected al-Jazzera mis-translation.
Osama threat that Kerry better win, or else ...
